Sydney oversees the spiritual development of children in our church and provides support for the families raising kids in the truth.  Sydney grew up in the great state of Texas. She was raised to love Jesus and the Dallas Cowboys. She grew up attending Sunday School, participating in VBS every summer, and quickly developed a love for being in church and serving God’s Kingdom.

Sydney’s passion for teaching children began when she was thirteen years old. Her first job was as an assistant swim instructor for toddlers. Then she began teaching dance camps for kids, then babysitting, and eventually she became heavily involved in the children’s and youth ministry at her home church.

Sydney attended Concordia University Texas in Austin, where she studied religious education and specialized in youth ministry. After graduating, she was placed on an internship at theCross to lead the Children’s Ministry in the summer of 2019. She continues to educate herself on children and family ministry and has recently finished her Master’s degree in Developmental Psychology.
